Russia: New Petition asks Duma to prohibit surrogacy and egg cell donation

As a reaction to a recent post on this website, the Russian non-governmental organization Семейная Политика·(Family Policy) has launched an internet petition, asking the State Duma to prohibit the abominable practice of egg “donation” and surrogacy motherhood, which has turned Russia into the preferred destination of homosexual couples or single persons wishing to procure children.

Given the implications the current legal situation in Russia, which sets absolutely no limits to surrogacy, has for other countries, it seems perfectly legitimate also for non-Russians to support this petition. A prohibition of surrogacy in Russia would de facto be a major advance in the Europe-wide fight against this peculiar form of human trafficking.
